Kreider Alliance, formerly the Arc of Lee County was started in 1952 by a group of parents who did not want to place their children in a state institution. We are a sister organization of Kreider Services and a partner of the Illinois Arc that concentrates its efforts on public awareness and education.
Kreider Alliance is committed to:
♦ Educating the general public about intellectual and developmental disabilities
♦ Supporting Kreider Services in their mission, vision and values
♦ Advocating for inclusion of people with disabilities
♦ Providing support to people with disabilities, their parents and families in Northern Illinois
♦ Nurturing professionals in the field by offering scholarships to local college students studying in the field of Human Services and Social Services
♦ Working with key stakeholders to protect rights and improve services to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
